Student Design Competition

Every year the SAC holds a design competition for our student chapters that feature a $1,200 first place grand prize along with a trip to WEFTEC to present at a national conference, as well as a $500 second place prize. The design competition is for teams of students to design and present a solution to a real world problem in the wastewater field.

Last year’s competition was held at the Henrico County Water Reclamation Facility on April 21, 2017. The teams were all given the same problem of providing recommendations for increasing capacity at the HRSD James River Treatment Plant. The winning team was from George Mason University which included: Ben Kirby, Elena Herrera, Tenzin Jigme, Kristine Mosuela. They will be representing Virginia this year at WEFTEC in Chicago. 

The next competition will take place on April 6, 2018 at HRSD in southeast Virginia. Please see the SDC Mission Statement here, the SDC Prompt here, and the SDC Package here for all of the information for the competition.
